Auray WSS-2014 Overview

The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshield delivers superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

This WSS-2014 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 5.5" and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm thick simulated rabbit fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear wind protection.

When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4 to 25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24 to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high-frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2014 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Audio-Technica, Neumann, Røde, Sanken, Sennheiser and others.

The WSS-2014 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

Auray WSS-2014 Reviews

Great for Outdoor Recording

By Tracy
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-10

I recently picked up an Audio Technica BP2049 to attach to my Canon XA50 to record marching band performances. This combination is awesome but the wind can really ruin the sound. I picked this Auray windshield and it really made a huge difference. It's not a miracle worker. It can't block the noise of 40 mph gusts but it does greatly reduce the wind noice to a reasonable level. For light to moderate breezes, this windshield is great. I thought it was a bit expensive when I bought it but I think it was worth every penny. If you are going to spend hundreds of dollars on a microphone, you might as well spend a little more and get a solid windscreen. I'm very happy with it. The audio comes into the mic loud and clear. The only downside is it just barely fits my Audio Technica BP2049. You have to push it all the way on as far as it will go.

Put on the Rode NTG2 anytime I record outside. Does a great job cutting wind while maintaining clarity.

Love it!

This windmuffler works very well in moderate winds. For severe winds, I still need to use my blimp and dead cat. But for most shoots this is perfect: a small, well-made muffler that really reduces wind noise and protects your mic as well. Love it!

Great timing

The timing was great when I received this. Because the Nor'Easter storm arrived here in Virginia Beach. �The winds were at 36-60 mph, which this windshield is not rated for. But the curious me had to try it out. Yes it couldn't handle the gust but I noticed it made a huge difference. I'm sure this will do well in most general conditions and I would recommend it. I like the grey color but I wish the price could have been a little less.

Knocks The Wind Out

I used this with my Sennheiser Mke 600 Shotgun Mic in 40-50 mph winds and it did amazing (award-winning). If the wind was coming at me it knocked the wind noise down significantly (if I was facing away from the wind it didn't make much of a difference since but that's not the windshield's fault. This thing has some flexibility as well when storing and it fits snug on the mic. Fibers are sturdy so you won't have to worry about it coming apart -- good quality.

Works great

The mic does capture less of audio signal in it, but it definitely does a better job of wind protection than the windshield that usually comes with shotgun microphone.
